Inès Manai (b. 1994) is a Paris-based photographer whose work evades simple categorisation, flitting between fashion, portrait, documentary and still-life photography. She’s created a name for herself shooting candid backstage imagery at fashion shows, photographing collections with a softness and beauty – as well as capturing moments of humanity amid the madness.


“When I’m shooting, I’m constantly thinking of the environment and context that me and the models or other subjects are in and how, in a way, I can extract them from it, in order to create an intimacy and proximity very particular to that instant. Just a particular look, or a certain gaze, or glimpse of emotion can define a whole piece of work. There is this safeness in the air that gives way to an openness or vulnerability in the models that allows them to show these same emotions.”
